Want my users to download pdf's on the site

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I don't know why I can't post in the subscription forum. I did before but now I can't. Anyway, I want to add a section to the site where I can add pdfs (around 20MB to 30MB each) for my users to download. 

 

Is there anything within pagelines to do this? How would people suggest I do it?

Hi, 

 

There maybe other ways of accomplishing this but this is how I did it on another site. First off I added the file or in your case PDF to the media in wordpress. Once the file was uploaded I then when in and click on edit and copied the file url to the right of the file and save it in notepad. I then opened up photoshop and made and image and uploaded it to imgur. Using this piece of HTML     <a href="PDF URL here"><img src="add your image url here"></a>  I then put that into the media box you can test the result here on my test site http://mytestdesigns.pw/ How you lay it out is completely up to you and your imagination.  

 

Hope this helps maybe some else may knows an alternative method for DMS.

I forgot to mention that once you have the file uploaded and have the url destination you could add that to a link in a post Download your PDF here

Thanks for the reply.

 

The problem is that my files are 20MB+ and Wordpress only allow up to 8MB

Hi steveburf

You can upload the pdf to any server (for example https://www.dropbox.com) and then link to this.
